Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `RahllRemember the control room scenes of The Hunger Games? Did you know the concept work for that control room and the 3D displays was done by our very own Reid Southen (Rahll)?Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `Rahll3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Reid is a senior member on deviantART who has been on the site for six years. Reid is also doing concept work for Jupiter Ascending, an upcoming 2014 sci-fi film.
He had posted a journal about his work on the Hunger Games back in February, but wasn't able to upload his work right away. He posted this deviation to his deviantART gallery yesterday:
"I had the pleasure of doing a lot of design work on the control room in the movie, from the interfaces to the holograms and such. Hybride in Montreal did a great job bringing it all to life, and it was fun seeing their tests and the f

DISNEY RAPES MY CHILDHOOD'S IMAGINATIONI JUST SAW THE TRAILER FOR "JOHN CARTER" AND I'M FILLED WITH RAGE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rf55GTEZ_EDISNEY RAPES MY CHILDHOOD'S IMAGINATION4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Edgar Rice Burroughs is TOTALLY spinning in his grave.
WTF DISNEY? WHY DID YOU MAKE ALL THE MARS PEOPLE WHITE?! HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING FROM AVATAR?
AVATAR'S NATIVES WERE BLUE, NEARLY NAKED AND NOBODY QUESTIONED THAT.
RED PEOPLE OF MARS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RED, FIT AND WEARING ONLY JEWELRY!
DID YOU HAVE TO SLAP CLOTHES ON EVERYONE? THIS IS BLASPHEMY OF JOHN CARTER! BLASPHEMY I SAY!
THIS IS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED ACCURATELY ACCORDING TO THE BOOK:
DISNEY? WHY U PICK WHITEST ACTRESS POSSIBLE FOR A MARS PRINCESS?
WHY U IGNORE THAT RED PEOPLE OF MARS ARE MEANT TO BE PHYSICALLY AND VISUALLY DIFFERENT FROM WHITE PEOPLE?
...OH WELL I'D GO SEE IT ANYWAY BECAUSE IM A CONSUMER WHORE.
DELICIOUS TETANUSThis week I got a tetanus shot.DELICIOUS TETANUS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently tetanus shots have actual tetanus IN THEM, just weakened a little.
Apparently it wasn't weakened enough.
NOW MY RIGHT ARM (WHERE SHOT WAS ADMINISTERED) IS:
A)HURTING LIKE A BITCH (CAN'T MOVE IT)
B)MOSTLY PARALYZED (CAN'T DRAW)
C)I HAVE A FEVER.

Take Care of Your Hands!You know...Take Care of Your Hands!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
...as an artist, I find that my hands are the body part I value most. I mean, sure, there's some people out there who would say that their kidneys are important, too (and why shouldn't they be?) – but, come on, HANDS.
If you didn't have them, how would the majority of people paint or draw? ...Yeah, shush, I know you can develop fine motor skills in other body parts, but imagine. What if, one day, you found that you couldn't use your hands for some reason?
What if more often than not, when you tried to draw, it brought you pain, numbness, or just was plain uncomfortable for you?
What if this pain made it difficult to do anything involving your hands?
Well, for many, this is a reality. It can become a reality for you, too, if you're not careful about it!
...I mean, I don't mean to sound like a naggy public service announcement, but you HAVE to take care of yourself!

In other news, there's a great new program for comic artists that I would like to share. It's part of Tapastic's Primetime Publishing Program (PPP) that pays comic artists based on the amount of page views they generate. If you are a comic artist, then you can make some extra money doing what you love. If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way

This past weekend, abutton and I headed out to MOCA to check out Transmission LA, an art exhibit curated by Mike D of The Beastie Boys and sponsored by Mercedes Benz.
I'd already seen some photography from the event and that's what really made me want to see the place, so in my most earnest effort to get you LA locals down there, here's some photos from the show.
Oh, AND IT IS COMPLETELY FREE. Just go and walk in!
The show runs until May 6, 2012 and features nightly performances from musicians such as: Santigold, Mike D, Fat Lip and Diplo (Yes, Diplo)
As Alex and I were walking up to the gallery, we could tell that something was a little different here, but until we were right up on it, we couldn't tell just what was going on out front.
Rainbow tables and benches! Each "line" of wood is a different color. The funny thing is, this effect s
Back to Basics Photography - CompositionLately I've seen quite a few photos that have potential, but need some work. Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You could crop your images afterwards when you get them onto the computer, but it'd be lovely to have a great image right off the boot, right? By keeping in mind the things below, you'll be well on your way to taking better photos. And don't forget, it's always better to know the rules before you start break them A few tips before we start;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.

Sadly this chip is only good for recording and not for playback.
I've definitely long lost track of time, traveling with Captain from one part of the city to another.
It's probably not even September, but most likely October. Anyway it doesn't really matter, because it's always cold thanks to nuclear winter and it's always either snowing or "ashening" with rare instances of sunlight breaking through the thick, gloomy, black clouds overhead.
I've made many mistakes in my past, and I don't have much to look forward in the future, but yet I keep living for some reason, even if that reason is captain's continuous entertainment.
Everyday before I fall asleep I think of what horrible things the captain will do tomorrow. This week the bastard kept dressing me up in ridiculous outfits and giving me new "personalities to play". Where does one find the time to dig up costumes? Yesterday I woke up all dressed up like an old lady a

History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r

Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev

One day in high school...One day I was in English class we were supposed to do a report on people from the 1930's (I think), and we had the whole library and the internet to get us some info. So the library had one book on the guy that I was chosen to do. So I used the computer to get some info. There was alot of info on the net, I mean enough to do the whole report. Then in the bottom right of my screen, my friend message me on the schools messaging system. I asked him how he done it and he told me that it was the computers number on the back. So I put his in and we were messaging each other. Then all of a sudden the librarian grabbed our shoulders and told us the what we were doing was wrong. So wrong that it could have corrupted the schools entire system (B.S.). So she banned us from all of the computers until the end of the year (Which includes the computer classroom too. wtf?)One day in high school...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

When inspiration is far to be found...We all get these anoying times when we really want to make something cool, get inspired and work that magic. We see everyone around us (online) do it, but how come we are not?When inspiration is far to be found...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we look for ways to get inspired, we ask around, find these usual answers: go watch a film, listen to music.. take a walk...
But even when we do that, we still end up stuck most of the time.
Part of the solution is knowing WHY we get stuck and this is my theory.
ADT - Attention Deficit Trait.
'Experiencing an inner frenzy of distractability, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities, staying focused and managing time. Those are our biggest enemies as they all end up cluttering your head and keeping you from spending quality focused time on a singular topic.
Everything we do now a days is based around multitasking and it is giving us a constant overdose of information. Let me elaborate.

So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:

There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat
